4-bedroom Scottish Highland cottage located on the Glencarron Estate sleeping 8
Gorgeous property, remote location, friendly estate manager
Six of us stayed three nights at Stag Lodge and we really enjoyed it. There are two full baths, a full kitchen, wireless internet, TV with cable/satellite and movies, books, central heat that works really well, and a washer and dryer. The location is rather remote and, from the west, includes several single-track roads, but the drive is beautiful and we saw wildlife daily, like deer and martens. The midges were horrible and a week later I'm still itching, so I definitely recommend bug spray and keeping doors and windows shut! Tesco will deliver groceries, which is convenient. The closest petrol and groceries were in Kyle of Lochalsh, about 45 minutes away, so plan ahead for gas and shopping. It was a great base of operations to see everything from Eilean Donan to the Isle of Skye.
We are delighted that you enjoyed Stag Lodge and thank you for the lovely review. There is in fact petrol and groceries much nearer at Lochcarron (two grocers and two petrol stations) 15 or 20 minutes away
Wonderful stay At Stag Lodge
Stag Lodge was ideal for our purpose. We are a family and friends group who are in to Hill Walking. There is plenty of space to relax, cook and dry cloths. Perfect location for many Munro's, including very good access to some courtesy of the estate. Very comfortable and fully enjoyable.
The one criticism was the poor flow rate in the down stairs shower.
Had a great time, and loved the cottage - again. I have stayed on the Glen Carron estate many times over the years. If I have one small gripe, the water pressure for the shower is so incredibly weak that it clearly needs a pump.
Delightful location and lodge
Fantastic location and made to feel very welcome when we arrived. Rooms all set out to accommodate the family as booked and the main bedroom being downstairs away from the other rooms was useful with kids being bit older. House was well equipped but a curtain screen to allow more use of the upstairs bathroom would have been useful.
Lugar tranquilo para relajarse
Sitio ideal para descansar y relajarse
Stag Lodge is located on the 12,000 acre Glencarron Estate, which lies on the western edge of the Scottish Highlands in Wester Ross. This beautiful Highlands location allows guests to admire the splendour of the local glens and lochs, which are best experienced on foot with four peaks over 3,000 feet located on the estate itself, and another eight only a short drive away.
The estate can also arrange a number of outdoor country pursuits, including stalking, fishing, and clay pigeon shooting.
Within easy reach of the cottage are a number of pretty villages, with the west coast of Scotland less than a half hours drive and home to Applecross and Plockton, as well as some lovely beaches.
The nearest village is Locharron, which stretches for two miles along a gorgeous loch and has a number of handy local services, including a village shop, a bank and a garage. The village also has fishing, sailing and golf available. For railway enthusiasts, the Kyle Line can be seen at the village. Nearby restaurants include Stratchcarron Hotel, The Carron and Rockville.
In the opposite direction to Locharron is Achnasheen, which sits at the foot of Bheinn Fionn and is home to the Ledgown Hotel and Achnasheen Railway Station.
Other places to visit within easy reach of the cottage include the Isle of Skye, Eilean Donan Castle, Attadale Gardens and several whiskey distilleries.
